Arctic Rip!

Look at my birthday book! Am I the last knitter in America to get this book? I've drooled over the beautiful FOs online from the patterns in this book--very basic, relatively easy, and fabulous style! A feast for the eyes!

My "knitting the blues" clearly shows how much time I have for mindless knitting! Using assorted bits and pieces of blue yarns, I'm making rectangles and squares to put together in a blanket for charity. It's fun to use so many different yarns to knit these bits-n-pieces while reading online and to carry in my purse!

Yes, indeed! You are seeing the Arctic rrrip! This panel did not quite measure up with the others in the world map afghan. So, using my charts, I ripped and and am now reknitting and shaping that section. Then, I will at long-last begin the final panel!!
I am loving my new flat panel monitor and my new HP computer! My old computer went to two of my DGs, ages 4 and 8, to use for their games. Everyone is happy! I hope you are too!

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. ---Aristotle

I am so excited to see this "world" take shape. I am eagerly awaiting the pics of the FO.

I'm sorry you had to rip the Arctic! And you aren't the last knitter to get the Mason Dixon book. I don't have it. But, I've been borrowing it from the library.
